DescriptionMeet your guide at your centrally located Ljubljana hotel in the morning, and then travel by air-conditioned minivan to Socerb Castle. Perched atop a steep cliff, the castle is among the most important examples of fortified architecture in the region. Admire the fortress’ ruined exterior with your guide, then head to a nearby vantage point for breathtaking views of the Bay of Trieste, the city of Koper, and the Italian border. Travel to the Church of the Holy Trinity in Hrastovlje. Enter the church and learn how it was constructed between the 12th and 14th centuries. Admire the southern Romanesque–style architecture and see its famous fresco of the Dance of Death, or the Dance Macabre. Continue to Sečovlje Salina Nature Park, the northernmost salt flats in the Mediterranean. Walk along the impressive salt pans, and hear how salt is still produced here using ancient methods.

During a brief walking tour of the town center, discover why Koper is considered to be one of the most historically important places on the Slovenian coast.
